#2020Resilience Twitter Chat Summary

To warm up for the global conference “Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security” taking place in Ethiopia in a few weeks time, Farming First and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) held a lively and informative Twitter Chat on the topic of “resilience”.

Our expert panelists from IFPRI and Farming First supporter organisations Fintrac and Farm Africa opened the debate by sharing their views on what resilience has to do with agricultural development.

Throughout the chat, panelists and our online audience shared abundant examples of projects already helping to boost the resilience of poor people and communities vulnerable to shocks and stressors such as climate change, conflict and scarce natural resources.






Our active online audience posed a number of interesting and challenging questions to our panelists – from how we can measure resilience – to what “better data” for farmers really means.
